MAC Glorify Extra Dimension Skinfinish Review + Swatches

Glorify Extra Dimension Skinfinish Yet another product that made me gasp when I saw it. I mean really, look at how vivid this is! I can't even! I waited for a couple of days so I could take pictures before I swatched the product. Remember MAC Hullaballoo High-Light Powder from '06? It had that fantastic sheen on the top, and underneath it was an average blah powder? Well, Glorifiy isn't like that.

Nordstrom describes it:

Extra Dimension Skinfinish is a liquid-powder highlighter with prismatic reflections that sculpts, highlights and models the face. The cool, creamy near-fluid formula creates a luminous, well-defined finish and wears ten hours.

MAC Glorify Extra Dimension Skinfinish Review

Yes, the powder is silky. The color is a true copper with a lovely sheen. Yes, it's really a great brown girl product that can be used on eyes and cheeks, probably as a highlight on the lips. But honestly, I'm not sure that the powder feels any different than a frosty eyeshadow. This is one of those products that you should really try for yourself at your nearest counter or store. In its defense, I think it looks better in real life. It's really, really pretty to look at in the container, and the color is good, but I can't say that you'll want to jump off a bridge for not having it. I definitely don't have the same enthusiasm that I had for Heroine lipstick! This is my first impression, but I would love to know what you think when you try it!

Edit: Two hours later, I went downstairs to do laundry. The lights are a bit more dim down there, and there's no direct sunlight. The swatch on my arm was still there, and the color looked 50 times better! It's really a true bronzy copper, perfect as a hightlight for brown skin. I'm going to try this as an eyeshadow tomorrow. And no, I'm not changing my mind because everyone else is saying this is an epic product. Lighting truly makes a difference!!!!
